A Chance to Give (& Receive)

Remember those posts on living simple in order to give that I wrote awhile back?  It seems like a long time ago that I typed my convictions and held my breath as I hit the publish button each day of that week.

I wonder what (if any) impressions those posts left on you.  I wonder if you've been able to scrounge up some money to give that you wouldn't have normally had on hand.

This morning I have an opportunity for you.  A good friend of mine who also makes jewelry is auctioning off a lovely necklace this week for a wonderful cause.  I don't know about you, but orphans are a population that tug at my heart string daily.  Okay, scrap that.  They don't tug, they tear.  The proceeds from Kathy's auction will go directly to support The Global Orphan Project, specifically orphan aid in Haiti.

You can read more about Kathy's auction here.  Take this opportunity to put your giving money into action.  You may even win a necklace in the process that you can give to a female relative or friend this Christmas.

To close this post, I want to leave you with a verse.  This verse may hit a little too close to home for some of us.  If it does, it may be time to take a good look at our hearts.

"How does God's love abide in anyone who has the world's goods and sees a brother or sister in need and refuses to help?  Little children, let us love, not in words or speech, but in truth and action."  1 John 3 :17, 18

  1. I know this doesn't seem like much, but we've been donating books to Haiti (not necessarily orphans) just by reading books online at

  2. Thanks for that verse. I'm challenged. Blessings,


Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
